Kaleb Anundi was anxious to get on the court this summer. After all, the solid 6-foot-8, 200-pound forward from Stayton High School had worked out on his own in the spring and didn’t play any AAU basketball. In July, he hooked up with Team Fly Williams and it ended up not only being a fun experience but one where he amped up his college recruitment as well.
“Everyone got along well and in Las Vegas, we got the highest seed that Team Fly has ever been,” Anundi said. “I felt I played kind of reserved and I didn’t really play like I knew I could, but I played defense really well. I showed coaches that I could shoot from the outside, so that was something big that I wanted to do.”
Because of his size and ability to shoot from the perimeter, college coaches have been in contact since AAU ball finished. Anundi noted that he’s been getting heavily recruited by Chico State in particular, who is hoping to offer him an official visit and some possible scholarship money. Corban has also talked about having him on campus for a visit, and Anundi is planning on making a trip to see George Fox Soon.
He’s also been in contact with many other schools, including Corban, Chaminade, Lewis & Clark, Carroll College, and after a recent appearance at an elite camp, the likes of Seattle and Seattle Pacific have gotten interested. With all that, Anundi is keeping an open timeline. “It would be nice to decide before the season starts if I’ve found the right fit,” Anundi said. “But I’d also like to see where I am if I play it out.”
In any case, whether he does decide early or not, Anundi is looking forward to his senior season. “I’m excited as this is going to be the best Stayton has been in a long time,” Anundi said. “I feel like I’m so connected with all of my teammates and I think we’re going to be good.”
Anundi currently ranks as the #28 player in the PrepHoops Oregon Class of 2019 rankings.
